Rough Diamond Ring

About Details Inspiration

Weighing in at about 1/3 of a carat each, these uncut, unpolished diamonds are of a quality that would be better called "industrial-grade".  In other words, they were probably meant to be processed into drill tips.  We saved them from this fate and elevated them to wedding-worthy heights by hand-setting each one into a classic Tiffany-style solitaire mounting.  Note that these stones' color ranges from light green to orangey-green to dark grey, and we can't standardize the colors we get.  While your diamonds may not look exactly like the ones pictured here, know that your stone will be gorgeous and unique (just like you!)

 In his Naturalis Historiae, published in 77 AD, Pliny wrote about diamonds' usefulness as tools:

    These stones are tested upon the anvil, and will resist the blow to such an extent, as to make the iron rebound and the very anvil split asunder. Indeed its hardness is beyond all expression ... When, by good fortune, this stone does happen to be broken, it divides into fragments so minute as to be almost imperceptible. These particles are held in great request by engravers, who enclose them in iron, and are enabled thereby, with the greatest facility, to cut the very hardest substances known.
